The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, More DC Shows Coming to Amazon Prime Video

The Arrowverse is streaming again in India. Amazon Prime Video announced over the weekend that it had secured streaming rights to Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Gotham, and Legends of Tomorrow. Four belong to the Arrowverse, while Gotham is standalone and unrelated. The Flash arrived Monday on Prime Video with all episodes, including last week’s The Flash season 7 episode 10. All six seasons of Supergirl will be available following Monday, May 31. Arrow, Gotham, and Legends of Tomorrow are all coming soon — the latter is the only ongoing series among them, as the other two have finished their runs. We’ve reached out to Amazon for comment.

For Indian DC fans, this will also help offset the troubles with Colors Infinity. The Viacom18-owned channel has been the cable home of Arrowverse in India for a while now. Still, it has not been airing the latest seasons of any ongoing series: The Flash season 7, Supergirl season 6, Legends of Tomorrow season 6, Black Lightning season 4, or Batwoman season 2. Colors Infinity says the pandemic is to blame, but that hasn’t stopped Amazon from getting its hands on all the new Arrowverse episodes. It’s likelier that it has to do something with Amazon’s new deal. We’ve contacted WarnerMedia for clarification and will update you when we hear back.

With this, the bulk of the Arrowverse — Arrow and Black Lightning were on Netflix, for what that’s worth — returns to streaming in India nearly 13 months since they left our screens due to Hooq shutting down. (Hooq had a deal with Disney+ Hotstar that temporarily made it both the home of Marvel and DC.) Warner Bros. Television Distribution had remained mum on the matter ever since, except it was always in discussions with partners. It recognized that DC fans in India wanted to watch their favorite superheroes on streaming. Now, after a full year and more, those fans have been seen by Prime Video and Warner Bros., though not all of them annoyingly.

For instance, there’s still no word on the other Arrowverse series: Batwoman and Superman & Lois. Batwoman has aired on Colors Infinity in the past, but Superman & Lois has yet to grace India officially. Neither has been picked by Amazon, seemingly. That is also true for other DC TV shows Do, om Patrol, Swamp Thing, Pennyworth, and DC’s Stargirl. The Superman prequel spin-off Krypton was briefly available in India but is not currently streaming. Titans are the only other DC show officially available here on Netflix. While Marvel is consolidated on Disney+ Hotstar, Indian DC fans will never get a similar treatment.

Still, it’s now going to be better than it has been. The Flash is now streaming on Prime Video. Supergirl will join it on May 31, with Gotham and Legends of Tomorrow following soon. Arrow is currently streaming on Netflix and will move to Prime Video soon. Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast, has a double bill this week: the OnePlus 9 series and Justice League Snyder Cut (starting at 25:32). Orbital are available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts.
